Re: Notes from Producers

This is the answer and how I feel too.... Without a rock solid agreement that the notes belong to you, you shouldn't show the revised script to anyone, just your original. I have a friend who is...

Re: A Page-One Rewrite for Free??

Personally, I've never known a writer who did one of these freebies that got a damn thing out of it. Unless producers have skin in the game, the writer means nothing because they invested nothing in...

Re: Bob Saenz's new book

I can't thank you enough. The book was a labor of love. I really had a good time writing it and I'm happy you got so much out of it.

Re: New York Is Better Than LA

Thanks for setting me straight. Had no idea. I know friends are bailing because of taxes. That'll teach me to assume.

Re: PSA To All Film Schools Students and Graduates

Nope. I'm surprised it's 30 grand when there are hundreds who'd do it for free to get a foot in the door. Nobody owes anyone anything, especially college graduates. If you want to make more money, go...

Re: PSA To All Film Schools Students and Graduates

Oh please. Gimme. Gimme. The studios have no responsibility to do anything for anyone. Assistant jobs are the corporate mailroom jobs of the film industry. They are starting at the bottom. It's...

Re: Should Aspiring Screenwriters Create a Creative Development Company

If you have money to pay all those people and investors lined up, sure. Otherwise..... no.

Re: How Many Members On Done Deal Are Writer - Directors?

And you would be wrong. Nobody has an easy chance to break in. It's years of hard work either way.... Oh, an no writer is breaking in with a script that's got a 300 million dollar budget, ever.

Re: Feature or TV

I wish this advice was true because it would be great to write 40 million dollar films. The problem? No one is making them in any significant numbers and even then they're mostly recognizable IPs. If...

Both? I write both. Sold both. But only the films, and not all of them, got made. Write low budget films, streaming series... Have fun doing it. I have my next 2 films scripts ready to write... and...

Re: Selling a pilot script on spec?

I'll give you the first bit of my pitch.... "It's the anti-True Detective. Light, bone dry, funny, just as violent." It's a very weird very funny pilot. People seemed to love it. Huge talent...

Re: Selling a pilot script on spec?

It was a much more complicated contract, took over a month for my reps to negotiate, and would be more than any of my film sales if it went. But it didn't. I did make some good initial money, but the...

Re: Selling a pilot script on spec?

Re: What are you looking for?

This is the same path I took... and that script, even though it finally got made 18 years after I wrote it, is still paying off. I do believe in the "one great script can open doors" theory.
